MOSSEL BAY NEWS - Mossel Bay Advertiser asked local people: "Are you thinking of selling your car and downscaling to a smaller vehicle because of the economic impact of the lockdown?"
Interviews: Linda Sparg
BENNIE STANDER: "Ek is gelukkig dat beide ons karre - my vrou s'n en myne - afbetaal is, so ons gaan dit nie verkoop nie. Ons het een klein kar en 'n groot kar. Gelukkig kon ek inspring en alternatiewe werk kry gedurende die grendeltyd, want my gewone besigheid het tot stilstand gekom."
NIEL CAWOOD: "I'm not going to sell my car. I'm not thinking of downscaling at this stage. I have two cars. I am okay with my monthly payments because we have been paying them off for four years, so they are almost paid off. They are old model cars."
SIKHUMBUZO MKHIZE: "No, I am not thinking of selling a car. Our large car is for a specific purpose. At a personal level, on the other hand, I was already using a small car long before the lockdown. I did this to manage costs, particularly rising fuel costs. The writing has been on the wall for some time."
